This paper describes a collapsible-bag sampler that is based on somewhat different operating principles than conventional U.S.-series samplers, but which has similar sampling characteristics and is used in the same manner as these samplers. An important advantage of the bag sampler is that it greatly facilitates sampling in deep streams and estuaries.
